What is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a common skin condition that speeds up the life cycle of skin cells. It causes cells to build up rapidly on the surface of the skin. The extra skin cells form scales and red patches that are itchy and sometimes painful.

When you have psoriasis, it’s essential to find a body wash, shampoos, lotions, and cleansers that will manage your symptoms and soothe your skin.

What causes Psoriasis?

There isn’t only one cause of psoriasis – it can be a mixture of different causes. Psoriasis can be inherited, but environmental factors may also play a role.

It is very important to know and understand that psoriasis is not contagious, so you cannot catch it from someone else or pass it on to others if you have it.
